J&K CM Mehbooba Mufti accuses China of interfering in Kashmir issue

Chief Minister, Mehbooba Mufti on Wednesday said the response and reaction shown by the people of the State to the killing of seven Amarnath Yatris two days ago shows that the spirit of Kashmiryat is alive and much vibrant today and the people of the State reject such despotic acts despite themselves being victims of violence for decades. "Now, even China has started meddling in our affairs", she said.

"Foreign hands are involved and unfortunately now, China is also interfering", Mehbooba said after emerging from her meeting with Rajnath Singh. She added that support of all the political parties and of the entire nation is required to cope up with the situation.

China on Wednesday said it was ready to play a "constructive role" in improving India-Pakistan ties over Kashmir, where the "situation has attracted the attention of the global community".However, India rebuffed Beijing's offer, saying "We are ready to talk Kashmir with Pakistan, but no third party mediation".

"Kashmir me hum law and order ki ladaai nahi ladd rahe". She said that the Amarnath pilgrims were targeted to instigate communal riots across the country.

So far, more than 1.86 lakh pilgrims have visited the high altitude Himalayan shrine.




The home ministry in consultation with the state government has chose to erect 21 more security pickets on the Amarnath route to check whether any vehicle carrying pilgrims is moving beyond the deadline of 7pm in the Valley.

The unrest resumed since the April 9 by-poll to the Srinagar Lok Sabha seat.

"I am happy that the president in his order has reiterated that special status granted to the state would not be diluted", she said.

Mehbooba said the Jammu and Kashmir government had requested the central government for ensuring that Article 370 would not get diluted as it has an emotional connect with the people of the state.
